Mountain Equipment Iceline -13 Sleeping Bag: -13 Degree Down


Product Details

Look to Mountain Equipment's Iceline Down -13 Sleeping Bag for expeditions and winter camping trips. Stuffed with 850-fill down insulation, the Iceline packs some serious lofty warmth for sub-zero temps, and it stays light enough for a backpacker's delight. V and trapezoidal baffling holds the down in place so you never feel a cold spot, and ground level seams offer protection against cold and wet earth. Mountain Equipment also equipped the Iceline with a water-resistant Drilite Loft II shell for extra water-resistant protection. The Iceline's EXL design gives it an extra roomy fit for more comfort in the alpine, and the Supersoft 40 lining lives up to its name. Like the rest of the bag, the DC8 baffled hood keeps the lofty down in place to give your head a cushy place to rest. The Gemini collar works with the draft tubes to further prevent cold drafts, and the 3/4-length side zipper offers easy access.

Price : $ 800

Winter Sleeping Bags Checklist

Insulation Type? For winter camping, nothing is better than high-quality goose down. It's warmer and less bulky. Yes, synthetic bags are ok (and less expensive), but for wintner camping...goose down rules.
Temperature Rating? Get a bag rated to -40 degrees. Remember, just because a bag is rated to -40, doesn't mean it will keep you warm at that temperature. Always be safe and "add 10 to 20" degrees onto the temperature rating of a sleeping bag.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A winter sleeping bag is useless without a thick sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad designed for winter, be sure to get one. Remember, sleeping pads are designed for BOTH warmth and comfort!
Don't Jerry-Rig a Three Season Bag for Winter Use. It's not really possible to "jerry rig" a three season bag to make it suitable for winter use. Many good three-season bags keep you warmer when you sleep without clothing. About the best you can do to "winterize" a three-season bag is to insert a sleeping bag liner. But it's still a sorry substitute for a quality four-season bag.
